PHILADELPHIA, PA (AP) -- Aaron Nola of the Philadelphia Phillies lost his no-hit bid on the Detroit Tigers after Nick Maton hit a three-run homer with two outs into the second deck in the seventh inning.
Nola faced the minimum in six innings, and had struck out 10 batters with two walks. In the seventh, he was in trouble when two batters were able to reach on a fielding error and a walk. The righty had two outs but he still hung a 0-2 breaking pitch to Maton. The third baseman then crushed it into right field to make the game 5-3.
Nola walked Maton in the fifth with one out, but the baserunner's run was erased when Eric Haase hit a double play to end the inning.
Nola's 68 out of 108 strikes were all strikes. Nola has pitched at least six innings each of his last 10 starts, including two automatic strike-three calls.
In a career that he has spent exclusively with the Phillies, he is 82-66. He made his debut with them in 2015. At the end of this season, the right-handed ace will be a free agent. Nola has pitched five complete games during his career.
This is the first season since Major League Baseball implemented a pitch timer that there have not been any no-hitters. Nine no-hitters were recorded in 2021, and four were recorded last year.
Nola is attempting to throw the first no-hitter for Philadelphia since Cole Hamels did it in his last start as a Phillies player in July 2015 against the Chicago Cubs.
Nola's no-hitter was broken in the seventh inning during a start against Toronto.
Trea Turner had two solo homers and an RBI single. Bryce Harper, Nick Castellanos and Nick Castellanos also contributed run-scoring hits as Nola took a 5-0 advantage over the Tigers.
